2016 Ducati 959 Panigale

The Perfect Balance

For 2016, the 959 Panigale is to become a larger capacity, even more versatile “Supermid” model from Ducati.

The 959 shares the same innovative stylistic features that characterize its ‘bigger brother’, the 1299 Panigale along with its racing attitude. Ducati made sure this Supermid was lightweight and ready to thrill, with a more powerful 955 cc Superquadro L-twin engine and slipper clutch.

Handling and control are managed through the exclusive monocoque frame, together with Showa BPF forks and fully adjustable Sachs rear Monoshock suspension.

Other high level components such as a Brembo Monobloc braking system with Bosch ABS, a slipper clutch, Riding Modes and Ducati Quick Shift all provide maximum control and safety.

The technology and performance of the new 959 Panigale are those of a large-displacement Superbike, with increased accessibility. The perfect balance for high-performance riding in all conditions, from the street to the track.
